DIY Valentine's Day Garland

7 Materials
15 Minutes

Dress up that plain mantle for Valentine's Day by turning heart-shaped cards into the perfect Valentine's Day Garland with the help of the Cricut Maker!

I wanna be that cool chick who decorates my mantel for every holiday - but Valentine's Day always had me stumped. Until I came across some heart shaped cards from Michaels! I grabbed a few packs, turned on my Cricut Maker, and in less than 15 minutes I had a DIY Valentine's Day garland that I'm proud to display!

Here are the supplies you will need:

  • Recollections Heart Cards and Envelopes from Michaels
  • Cricut machine - I used the Maker but this could be done with any of the Explore machines as well!
  • Xyron Mega Runner
  • twine
  • scissors
  • white glitter cardstock (not pictured)
  • foam dots (not pictured)

Step 1: Open the card and lay the twine across the fold.

Step 2: Use your Mega Runner to apply some adhesive at the top of the heart and at the bottom.

Step 3: Fold the card closed.

Step 4: Cut your XO images from glitter cardstock (to see the exact file that I used in Design Space, please visit my blog).

Step 5: Add foam tape to the back of each letter and adhere.

And voila! In 5 simple steps and in less than 15 minutes, you can make your own festive Valentine's Day Garland that can be displayed anywhere in your home!

    I wondered about the tassels and Pom-poms, but you have three separate garlands layered there... right?

    it looks very cute.
